Sknote’s MetaVocals is a new, affordable plugin that promises to automatically tune, double, harmonise, and vocode your vocals

MetaVocals is an easy, quick and super-versatile tool for fixing, editing, enhancing, expanding, and mangling vocals in a song. With its plain interface, it is built around a real-time auto-tuning engine. The tool detects incoming signal’s pitch in real-time and, depending on the settings, corrects the intonation in a smooth and natural way. Refine vocals in seconds.

For deeper editing, MetaVocals can output the whole track as MIDI events you can edit in detail in your host’s editor. No interfacing to external software, no heavy interfaces, just your standard MIDI editor. Then it gets MIDI in while playing. Total control on the tuning and the doubling/harmonising.

Once the main vocals are perfectly refined, MetaVocals starts becoming creative. Two additional voices can be generated on top of the main track, for doubling and harmonies. Simply set the relative position of the additional voices as semitones and let them play with the main vocals. Dynamically control them through MIDI events where needed.

For an even creative use and to start going into the wild, engage the synthesizer mode. The incoming signal gets converted to a synthetic sound, controlled by vocals’ parameters. The same for optional harmonies.

Even further, engage the Vocoder mode. The overall spectrum of vocals controls the timbre of the synthesized sound and of optional doubling/harmonies.

You can pre-order MetaVocals now for the reduced price of $30 (the regular price will be $50). It runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats.
